Vrads Sande can be experienced by car and there are some good trails for a walk.

The entire area is protected and is grazed by goats and sheep.

There is much more than what you just see from the road, so this is more of a road trip.

Start in the small town of Vrads at Bryrup. Drive at St. Bredlundvej and at the bottom of the hill, turn right and you drive through Vrads sande. After the straight road with the hills where the road ends, turn right onto Faurholt road. There is then a long drive through woods and heather areas.

In the small town of Asklev, turn right at the intersection. Then you come back to Vrads, here you can visit the small shop in the middle of the city. Here you can sit outside.

If you came from Brædstrup city, you can drive home at this this beautiful road:

Return from Vrads to Bryrup, at the roundabout take the first road down towards the city. In the middle of the city, just opposite the veteran railway, turn left onto Østervang, there is signs for the sports ground.

Continue until the road ends and turns into a dirt road. Then you drive down the valley with the cottages. When the road ends at a junction, turn left at Lykkesrovej, here is a nice drive.

When the road ends at a t-junction, turn right onto Slagballe. In the city, turn right and from here you can drive towards the main road.
